Dada and a poster named Alice are arguing that property rights either do not exist as inherent rights (Dada), or if they do exist, they’re meaningless without the sanction of government (Alice). Eric and I, of course, are arguing the view that they’re inherent rights (with Eric doing most of the arguing, I think I’m simply a diversion).

So I recommend heading over and taking a look. You might learn something. I know I have.
